This restaurant is on the north end of Bridgeway, a mile or two from downtown Sausalito – a long walk, or a short drive. There is plentiful parking behind the building, accessed by a side-alley or, more easily, off the side-street to the south.

This is an unassuming, casual restaurant with a dark woodsy interior of wooden chairs and tables, which altogether give a good feeling – the kind of place that makes a good “first date”. But we decided to do take-out, at their 5 pm opening time, on a weekday. Our order was ready in about 10 minutes. We tried the Jasha Maroo and the Churi Pama, both listed as “regional cuisine”. These are vegetable-laden meat stews that were delicious on the supplied rice (which was better-than-average rice, too). These dishes were lighter than typical Indo-Pakistani curries, but were surprisingly filling nonetheless. There is nothing that we can compare them to. We also tried the Badami naan (cherries and fennel!) and the coconut naan. Both were soft, moist, and sweet, and made a great “dessert” after the stews. Again, there is nothing that we can compare them to. We also tried a starter that involved a puffed-rice salad, which was deliciously different but difficult to describe.

Run by a genuine Nepalese family.

We rarely give 5 Stars to a casual restaurant, so we make our usual disclaimer that we have no personal or financial interest in this institution. But we’ll be back.

We shared a dinner with four people and shared the small sampled dishes around, so that we each got a little taste over rice. It was very filling and great spices!

Came there because I had a groupon and really liked it. Food was delicious and tasteful. I'm coming again once in that area.

Nice little unassuming restaurant cranks out some great dishes.
Nicely spiced and not oily or heavy.
The owner is on site cooking and the wait staff is very friendly.
We all enjoyed the food on multiple occasions.
